Show Review: Carrie Scott & The Red Hots


I first met Carrie Scott three years ago, and right off the bat, I knew she was a performer. Those azure blue eyes and engaging smile could knock even the stoutest of hearts off of their feet. ---The best part is that she also happens to be one of the nicest people in the world.

With her sultry voice, she skips easily from blues to rock with a flip of the tambourine, and always does her best to make her shows everything an audience could want. And on Friday, May 28, her show with the band The Red Hots was absolutely no exception.

The band was in true, if not rare form, as they rocked their way through Pat's BBQ. The audience was blown away as they chowed down on decadent meats. With Carrie Scott on lead vocals, Ron Saltmarsh kicking trash on guitar, Rod Strong lighting up the keys, Jon Heitcamp keeping that back beat on drums and Ray Rosales, a newcomer to the group, on bass, they performed songs like “Voodoo Woman,” “Take me to the River," “Sweet Home Chicago," “The House is Rockin," “The Thrill is Gone," and “It Hurts so Bad." The band also performed some of Scott's original song “Subaru” from her self-released album Segue.


Through the years, I've called myself Carrie Scott's groupie, stalker, photographer, jokingly her “manager” and PR person, and most happily, friend. Above it all, one thing that will never change, something I will always be: a fan. If there is a show to see, it will always be these guys. They provide the perfect ensemble to compliment Carrie Scott's impressive stage presence.
